The Spir­ited Girl

The al­lur­ingly gor­geous TAMANNAAH BHATIA is a well-renowned name down South. And in­deed, her time has ar­rived. To­day, with Bahubali break­ing all records, Ta­man­nah is all set to soar su­per high. Here, she talks about her tryst with star­dom, her strug­gle an

You are one of the high­est paid ac­tresses in the South, was it easy for you to make a mark in Bol­ly­wood ini­tially? Well, I would say that there were peo­ple who had seen my South In­dian films. And then I was called to do Hindi films. I am from Mum­bai, and that’s the rea­son why I feel great to work in Mum­bai. Also, it’s my aim to be in Mum­bai and al­ways work here.

What is your favourite genre in films? I am not a film-maker or a script-writer. I am an ac­tor, and I am the medium. I switch from one char­ac­ter to an­other. If you ask me to cre­ate a char­ac­ter and make a film out of it, I can’t. Be­cause that’s not what I do. For me, my jour­ney is to play dif­fer­ent char­ac­ters. That’s what I con­cen­trate on do­ing.

What was the best part about be­ing on the sets of Bahubali? The best part about be­ing on the sets was that every­body wanted to give their best. That is one com­mon thing that I saw - from the per­son who is cre­at­ing the sets to the per­son who is act­ing. I found every­body ex­tremely ex­cited to be a part of the film. How­ever phys­i­cally chal­leng­ing it was, they still wanted to be a part of it. Every­body knew they were do­ing some­thing spe­cial – some­thing that’s never been done be­fore. The magic of each and every per­son on the sets has added to the magic of Bahubali.

What was the best and worst ex­pe­ri­ence in your jour­ney? My best ex­pe­ri­ence would def­i­nitely be Bahubali. Hands down! From how or­gan­ised they were to the qual­ity of work we did. Every­body was su­per punc­tual. The way they shot the film and the tech­nol­ogy that was used in the movie was amaz­ing. I think in every way, it’s prob­a­bly my best ex­pe­ri­ence.

When a film doesn’t do well, how do you keep your­self mo­ti­vated? Some­times it feels ter­ri­ble when your film doesn’t do well. The films I don’t ex­pect to work, do re­ally well, that’s my per­cep­tion. If a film doesn’t do well, there is no other way of re­deem­ing your­self ex­cept mov­ing on and do­ing more work. I have to move on and I have to keep on work­ing, so that’s what I keep do­ing.

Which role or film do you feel will change your pro­jec­tion as an ac­tor in the in­dus­try? I can­not tell you how dif­fi­cult it is to pre­dict what is go­ing to hap­pen to­mor­row. I have ab­so­lutely no idea or can’t imag­ine which film can change my ca­reer. When the right thing has to fall into place, it will. How? When? Where? Is re­ally hard to an­swer as of now!
